Science 8: Introduction to Physical Science

Physical science is the study of the basic principles that make the universe tick – the rules of physics and chemistry. Physics is the study of matter and energy. Chemistry is the study of matter and changes in matter. Through reading, multimedia presentations, hands-on activities, classroom discussion, and more, students will investigate the rules that govern the behavior of their surroundings. Honors classes evaluate these same topics with the incorporation of inter-relationship between physics and chemistry at the conceptual level.
